Overview

As you arrive at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, the stunning sleek, black lines of Britain's first iron-hulled, armoured warship, take your breath away. Warrior, launched in 1860, was the pride of Queen Victoria's fleet. Powered by steam and sail, she was the largest, fastest and most powerful ship of her day and had a profound effect on naval architecture. Warrior was, in her time, the ultimate deterrent. Yet within a few years she was obsolete. Restored and back at home in Portsmouth, Warrior now serves as a ship museum, monument, visitor attraction, private venue and more. Open all year round, we invite you to experience her for yourself. Open daily from 10.00am except 24th, 25th & 26th December

amazing well preserved ship well worth a visit. Lift a cannonball, and use the cafe in the original galley of the ship. Sit round the cannons!

The great thing about Warrior is its size: it feels spacious, in most parts, and thus makes a less testing visit for anyone not intrinsically interested in naval or imperial history - and that includes younger children. (The five- and seven-year-olds with us on our...More

This beautiful ship was a rotting hulk for 70 years until a brilliant renovation was done in the 1980s. Its a great visit for anybody interested in history or early engineering. As on the Victory the volunteer guides are knowledgeable and friendly.

This iron clad warship represented at its time a quantum jump in naval warfare. Both the exterior and the interiors are well preserved and interesting. There is quite a bit of climbing as there are several decks, and the ceilings tend to be quite low....More

The children really liked this ship. I slightly prefer Victory Because I find it a little more atmospheric. A good trip would be to visit the ships in age order, ending with a dockyard boat tour to see current navel ships. Such a good learning...More

This makes a trio of ships to visit ranging over a number of centuries, so is a must see place that has been well re-furbished!
